    I would spam outposts and mortars along the shore to support any navy you have -- and then make sure to draw their navy into the range of your fortifications during a naval battle.

    I'd try Aztecs, your navy will be stronger cause of the fire pit and your economy will also be stronger since you can pump out 99 vills pretty fast.

    I have actually never played DM on amazon, This just sort of works out in theory.

    Yes but on Amazonia the goal is to land on the other side, establish a bridgehead, secure a small part of land for a base and then overrun. Mortars are better for stopping steps 2 - 4 than culverins are.

    That makes me right.

    no there not, you will almost always have oppostition from your enemy, and if hes smart he will biuld artillary. if you have morters you will just have 25 pop doing nothing, or at best destroying a tower. the culvrins are way more useful because they will counter his artillary.

    btw, do culvrins do good against abus?

    No they don't. And you will be countering his unit building ships from a range that keeps your artillery from dying. Good luck keeping a bridgehead without a base or galleons. Galleons can't make artillery so your culverins will only be able to counter arty if you let him build a foundry (or if he ships it across... mortars help with that.)

    This is Amazonia. Either he doesn't have a foundry on your side or you did something wrong. If its in his base, then the transportation time from foundry to ship to land to fight is so long that it is a substantial drain on his max fighting pop. This renders your mortar argument null.

    Blow his galleons out of the water and he's not repopulating his army as fast as you. This can let you keep a few mortars in the back to continue to blow his galleons out of the water. You start with the upper hand right off the bat because of the transport time it takes to land on your side and the fact that they can't just land 150 men on your side. Its about keeping your advantage and mortars are a more than cost effective way to do it. You wouldn't need any more culverins than usual. Probably less, you're looking at decreased amounts of artillery from his side if he realizes what a drain it is to his population to spend so much time shipping them.
